July 7: Bob Dylan: Martha Quinn interview for MTV London 1984 (videos)





bob dylan london 1984 interview

..Dylan, who is interviewed backstage at Wembley by Martha Quinn for MTV. The interview lasts over half an hour. Dylan is extremely talkative, discussing such matters as his early days at the Cafe Wha, the recording of Infidels, and his attitude toward videos. MTV broadcasts very little of the interview. At the end of the interview, Dylan tells Quinn that she asked some really good questions.
~Clinton Heylin (Bob Dylan: A Life in Stolen Moments Day by Day 1941-1995)

Martha Quinn: Will this tour help you reach a new generation?
Bob Dylan: I don’t reach anybody. They find me. They find me. It’s not for me to go out and reach somebody. If they can find me, they find me, and if they don’t, they don’t. That’s the way it’s always been. I don’t think it’s gonna change now just because I’m such an old man and it’s nineteen-eighty… what is it?

One of the worst things people can say when writing a book like this is “You really had to be there”. Yet, for, “Like A Rolling Stone”, that night, “you really had to be there”. Dylan’s voice was a blurred burr and yet powerful and compelling as it competed with a deafening crowd throughout this epic song.

Happy Birthday Kris Kristofferson (born June 22, 1936)

“Dylan’s probably my biggest hero as an artist, songwriter and singer”
– Kris Kristofferson

We have chosen to take a look into the relationship between Kris Kristofferson and Bob Dylan, and as expected it is harder to find quotes from Dylan than Kristofferson.

Dylan and Kristofferson go back a long time. Kris Kristofferson was a janitor in a Nashville studio when Dylan was recording Blonde on Blonde in 1966. They both appeared in the 1973 film “Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid” and they have recorded and performed each others’ material. Dylan covered Kristofferson’s  They Killed Him on his album,  Knocked Out Loaded.
